Then again, you can't really have a "side" of a spherical object can you!
Well, maybe inside and outside; though, as Morin demonstrated, even that's not strictly true for a hollow sphere; but I digress.
I guess we might call it the 'Dark Hemisphere'; but with 'dark' being so controversial, perhaps not.
The 'Far Hemisphere' suffers from the same problem as 'Next City'; just a teansy weansy bit short-sighted relatively (NOTE: not relativistically) speaking.
Of course, the 'Occulted Hemisphere' suffers the same problem, even if it wouldn't be condemn by great swaths of religious leaders.
How about the 'Lunar Hemisphere We Don't Normally See'? (Will the use of 'Normal' be controversial in some circles I wonder?)
Plus, good luck getting Pink Floyd to retroactively modify their lyrics to incorporate that.
